Could you provide text transcripts for the hearing challenged, and those who prefer to read instead of view?

Thanks!

Hi all -- we appreciate your feedback. This "video" however, is just a slideshow of written tips with some music, so the hearing impaired should be able to view the video and get the full effect. We will keep this in mind for other videos, however.

Thanks!

Here is a tip you probably already know but some new people might not. Go to the website of whatever med you are taking and see if they have a copay card. If you have non govt insurance you usually no more than $25 regardless of income for brand name drugs. I have used it so far for xgeva-$25. Ibrance-$10. There's one for kisqali that I think is $0. My ins has pretty high copays on specialty drugs and neither the onc or the nurse coordinator told me about these. A friend found the first one for me. There are no income requirements. Unfortunately they don't work for govt ins, but most have other programs for that and might have income requirements. I think there are a lot of different assistance programs out there but you have to ask.

I thought this would be a good thread for people to add their cost saving tips but if that was not the intent of the post, sorry and feel free to delete or move. Thanks!
